My first Ulta experience

For those of you who've never heard of it, Ulta is an amazing beauty store: makeup, skincare, hair tools, you name it!

I went for the first time on Friday with my Mom (I don't work on Fridays so my Mom and I will usually get together - when we were renovating the house, it was our time to paint, put up curtains, run to Target, etc. I like how it's grown into our little "tradition!")

Since I've recently become obsessed with watching videos by this gal, and she mentions Ulta quite a bit, I thought I'd check it out.

Holy moly!!!

I probably could have spent several hours in there, but thankfully (I guess??) I only had about 1! And while it was a bit overwhelming (being that I was a "newbie") I took my time to just look and not go crazy buying every little thing!

Here's what I did pick up:

Sally Hansen Nails & Cuticle Hand Cream

Evolution of Smooth lip balm in Summer Fruit

Essie nail polish in "Turquoise and Caicos"

I have not yet tried the nail polish, but I love the hand cream and lip balm - they both have great scents and keep my hands/lips feeling soft!

Ulta is having a "20% of your entire purchase" sale (**On-line only** ends on Saturday!) so I snagged a few more goodies after reading a bunch of reviews on the Ulta site - but that'll be a different blog post!


  1. I heard they may have the Naked Urband Decay Palette! I love me some coupons..and Essie!!! I may have to make it one of my stops!

  2. Do they??? It wasn't there when I went..they had a little sign that said, "We'll let you know as soon as it's in stock" :(

  3. Thanks for the heads up to the sale... Headed to the Ulta site now! Love that polish color you snagged. There is an Ulta super close to me which = danger ;)
